This paper aims to do a quantitative survey of the use of English equivalents of grammatical terms of the Korean language in research papers published since 2000. For this study 226 papers dealing with the Korean language or Korean as a Foreign Language (KFL) were selected from the database of KISS (Korean Information Sharing Service) to glean English equivalents of Korean grammatical terms. These equivalents were compared with their counterparts found in 9 KFL textbooks published in Korea or abroad for the comparison of the terms. The analysis of this paper especially focuses on the terms ``ida``, ``pre-noun``, ``particle``, and ``suffix``. This study intends to find out the most frequently used English equivalents of these grammatical terms in research papers to compare them with the terms used in Korean textbooks to find out frequently used grammatical terms from both resources. This study suggests that the standard English equivalents of Korean grammatical terms need to be selected from a comprehensive survey of current research findings, including research papers and textbooks.
